The program will include songs from the great American songbook by Gershwin, Arlen, Bachrach, Beatles and more. Tickets cost $32 in advance and $40 at the door if available. They are available at any HRCA recreation center or online at HRCAonline.org/tickets. Bags will be checked at the gate. No outside alcohol or glass allowed.
